Skeptical Me



A little help available? , For a wimp like me?

I’m the prospect of abuse, And I choose to be.

Emotional and physical assaults, I quietly victimize,

To preserve the image of an “Honorable me”.

I am clueless whether  or not to question such a chosen life for oneself or turn a deaf ear, be selfish and say it’s none of my business (for a loved one). I heave a sigh… then think…then suggest, but none of that helps preventing any extensions to a friend’s agony of her unsuccessful marriage life. Reason is obvious and the reason reminds me of the quote from an old movie Field of Dreams which is: “If you build it, he will come.” I have no idea why?

The reason is providing them with a second chance after every second chances. A chance to welcome them for abusing more. The school of thought that represents “You need to adjust with life or sacrifice once you’re a parent” is acceptable but is a theory that don’t really apply in each case. Even being children doesn’t really provide us with a certificate of controlling our parents individual space or judge them, So you can stop thinking your son/daughter is going to blame you in a near future. Physical abuse for once can be considered a mistake but twice and repeatedly….?


Set It Right

Popping her head out of window door
Pretty curls in her hair dancing high and low
This car is too slow
This wind is too fine
She gotta take a stand and …….”SET IT RIGHT”

She’d be shutting her jaw, better stop her gaze
This reputed world never cease to amaze
Their eyes on her race
Studying her face
She better fake a smile and ……. “SET IT RIGHT”

Scattered dust that follows every shaft of light
That seldom is our journey in this land magnified
So why keep a grudge?
Resent or disgrace
She’s thinking all this long & she …… “SET IT RIGHT”
